Plus Q & A
PLUS stimulates the formation of new collagen and improves the skin's elasticity for long-lasting and remarkable results. This is the perfect treatment if you have sagging skin in your face and neck, knees, abs and other parts of the body. If you want to improve and contour areas of your body even more, this can help to achieve those results as well. It’s a comfortable, non-invasive solution that you can do over your lunch time break without worrying about downtime. Most patients go through a series of recommended treatments based off the consultation. These results can be long lasting with proper maintenance and the right skin care routine.
WHAT IS PLUS?
PLUS uses fractionated radio-frequency energy to stimulate collagen production for body remodeling. After Plus treatments you can achieve a more youthful and toned skin contour making your body appear smoother, sexier and younger.
IS PLUS FOR ME?
PLUS is recommended for individuals who are looking for a non-invasive skin treatment to address targeted areas that require contraction. Plus can be used to reduce texture irregularities in lax skin to provide a lifted appearance. Plus is safe and can be used on all skin types and tones.
WHAT RESULTS WILL I SEE AND FEEL?
During treatment, most patients will feel a heat sensation and “feel” tighter. Over time patients typically notice a reduction in the folds of their skin leading to a smoother contour of the body. Textural irregularities will even out and sagging skin will appear more toned.
WHAT AREAS CAN BE TREATED?
PLUS can be used on parts of the body that may need contraction after the effects of weight gain/loss or general aging. Most com- mon areas of treatment include the abdomen, arms (bat wings), inner thighs, outer thighs, back fat and knees.
WILL IT HURT?
PLUS is essentially painless and has no downtime; it feels like a hot stone massage. Patients may see slight redness in the treated area, which will lessen within a few hours. All patients are able to return to their daily activities immediately after treatment.
HOW MANY SESSIONS ARE REQUIRED?
Typically, weekly sessions are recommended over a six to eight-week period. Individuals with mild skin laxity may be treated in fewer sessions with more weeks between each treatment. Scheduling should be based on a pre-evaluation. Best results will be noticed over time or after a series of treatments.
